4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 31 Oct. 2012
By 
This review is from: Torchwood: Exodus Code (Hardcover)
This is a review of the audio book . I bought this as a fan of Torchwood, but, as I wasn't keen on Miracle Day, and knowing that this is set after that, I was a bit apprehensive. However I was pleasantly surprised, It was much better than I expected. The characterization of the Torchwood cast was spot on, and I really loved the fact that Jack is back to his flirty self, action hero, rather than the depressed sidelined character he was in Miracle Day. The plot (and chapters) move quickly, and frequently back and forth between different times and events (from present day, to years ago, to a few weeks ago), which can be a bit confusing at first but was OK once I got used to it.

The story itself was intriguing enough to maintain my interest throughout. A couple of plot holes (hence I gave it 4 stars instead of 5), but certainly better than some of the other TW novels I have read in the past, and despite what another reviewer said, Rex, thankfully, barely appears in the story, It's primarily Jack, with Gwen, Rhys. Sergeant Andy also makes an appearance. New characters are also introduced, some of which grabbed my attention, others not so much, but they didn't overshadow what is a basically a good Torchwood story.

I enjoyed listening to it. It helped that Daniel Pirrie did an excellent job reading it, making the characters sound believable. His Jack Harkness accent is pretty good!
